Army on alert

July 28, 2008
As Ahmedabad comes to grips with the 16 back-to-back explosions that ripped through the city killing 49 and injuring 200 on a quiet Saturday, targeting folks out for a walk or shopping, the army staged a flag march in the sensitive neighbourhoods to keep the city calm.

"As a precautionary measure the army has been called in and its personnel are conducting a flag march in sensitive areas of the city," said Mohan Jha, additional commissioner of police.
